        Subject: Conference: Supporting the Digital Humanities, Vienna, 19-20th October2010

SDH 2010 - Supporting the Digital Humanities
19-20 October 2010, Vienna University of Technology

NEERI 2010 - Networking Event for the European Research Infrastructures
21 October 2010, Vienna University of Technology

SDH2010 is the first conference that is jointly organized by the CLARIN 
and DARIAH initiatives, which are building the European research 
infrastructure for the humanities and related disciplines. SDH2010 aims 
to bring together infrastructure providers and users from the 
communities involved with the two infrastructure initiatives. The 
conference will consist of a number of topical sessions where providers 
and users will present and discuss results, obstacles and opportunities 
for digitally-supported humanities research. Participants will be 
encouraged to engage with honest assessments of the intellectual 
problems and practical barriers in an open and constructive atmosphere.

SDH2010 is organized together with NEERI2010, the second European 
networking event for research infrastructures. Whereas SHD2010 will 
focus on the types of research made possible by research computing, 
NEERI2010 will focus on the technical, architectural and social 
challenges of building the infrastructure.

NEERI2010 is the second Networking Event of its kind, providing a 
follow-up to NEERI2009 held in Helsinki. The goal of NEERI2010 is to 
exchange ideas on a number of topics relevant for research 
infrastructures and to clear common ground on the further development 
and application of these topics. NEERI focuses on what we share and what 
we can learn from each other. Examples of such commonalities are
architectural issues, communication with users and integration of 
services and tools.

SDH 2010 will have a special focus on the humanities and social 
sciences, while NEERI will focus more on general aspects of research 
infrastructure development across all disciplines, including the natural 
and life sciences.

Registration is open. Further information is available on the conference
